Kate Spade has made an empire for herself. The gal from Kansas has made her mark in the handbag market and expanded it to shoes, accessories, paper goods, coats & sleepwear, picture frames, baby goods and china/crystal home goods. I have become a bit bored with the bags, but every once in a while one catches my eye. I prefer the small items like cell phone holders & iPod cases or the datebooks. The playful colors of her shoes & bags may be a fun addition to a plain black dress or tan capris. Liven up your life with Kate's accessories. Just about all of the line may be found in her store on Broome Street in Soho, including custom order stationary.
